Hydraulic Gear Pump
In hydraulic drive systems hydraulic pumps are used to allow the system to carry out its functionality. Using mechanical power, a hydraulic pump turns it into hydraulic energy which also allows for different pressures at the inlet and outlet of the pump. There are three common types of hydraulic pumps and one of them is gear pump.
In hydraulic gear pumps, the mechanical action applied on the gears allow for the transfer of fluid. The pump works when mechanical energy causes the rotation of gears within causing the teeth of the gears to unmesh, allowing a vacuum to form in the inlet. This vacuum sucks in the liquid and fixed enclosed volume of liquid are transferred as the gears mesh at the outlet. Corresponding to the movement of the gear, proportional and pulse free liquid is transferred in gear pumps.
The use of hydraulic gear pump is mostly seen in places requiring the pumping of highly viscous fluids. They are also required in highly durable environments as hydraulic gear pumps are the best when it comes to working with abrasive contaminated liquids. Primarily hydraulic gear pumps can be seen with spur gears but other types of helical, bevel and screw gears are also used depending on the use cases. And overall, there are two types of hydraulic gear pumps;
There are clear considerations to make when choosing hydraulic pumps and here are some advantages afforded by gear pumps;
While gear pumps are perfect for certain conditions, there are also limitations attached with using the pump, such as;
Eurobalt Engineering Provides Gear Pumps and Hydraulic Drive Systems
As part of our initiative to be a one stop shop for all things hydraulics, Eurobalt Engineering has been working for years to brings its own pumps to the market.
